A Self-Builder’s Dream

30.06.20

Pre-fab homes are using cutting edge technology and design methods to create stylish luxury buildings. Take a look at what they can deliver for self-builders.

Having come a long way from what was once a byword for drab and temporary architecture, Prefab has transformed into design-based modern homes of the highest quality by utilising Modern Manufacturing Methods.

The major difference between prefabricated and traditional house building is that most of the building work takes place offsite, and the on-site construction process involves piecing together the various modules.  Quality is an obvious benefit. Manufacturing within a factory using production management and quality control processes, results in a higher quality product compared to construction on a building site in all kinds of weather conditions. Speed is another advantage. Typically, a Baufritz project takes around one year from concept to completion, with the shell construction (walls and roof) erected and watertight in a few days. Finally, prefabricated construction delivers greater flexibility in relation to design and materials. We find this is important to our clients who want to see their ideas realised in the building.

Here we should bring in the concept of configuration. Prefabricated houses are made up of configurable elements, which are selected and brought together in the manufacturing process. Imagine a car configurator where wheels, engine etc. make the final car, instead windows, bathrooms and doors are selected. To support clients, we have developed the design centre to facilitate configuration selections. Through testing, we understand which elements fit together, which takes a level of risk out of the building process. Naturally just like a car you can customise your house and most of our clients will certainly do this.

As with all manufacturing, Baufritz have developed a process to control the housebuilding journey. We start by taking some of the conceptual ideas and developing these into architectural designs. We support our clients through the planning process using our in-house teams. Once planning is approved, we are able to manufacture and erect the building using our manufacturing and construction teams. Baufritz are able to deliver either a full turnkey solution managing all aspects of construction, or we deliver just the shell made up of walls and roof, with the client responsible for the internal fit out. We are always pushing the boundaries of innovation and design. Our design team is continuously developing our house designs, materials and manufacturing methods.

We hope this blog has helped inform our readers on the approach used by house pre-fabrication. The key message is that it is possible to create luxury stylish modern houses using modern manufacturing methods. The final product benefits from the extensive testing and rigorous process controls, which we expect to find from the manufacturing sector.
